Cleared to land at Earth - Funding Target Reached!

Posted by Chris Booker (Creator)

Hello!

First of all, THANK YOU to everyone who has helped us break through our funding goal today. Your support has been amazing and now its our turn to pay you back with a great book.  Our Writers Pack pledge has gone into the Elite: Dangerous project just now and carried the total to a shade over £1,120,000 as I write this.

You can still help - we're all a bit nervous and could use your moral support in the authors forum (£35 pledge level) over the year ahead - so if you pledged at that level or above, then you'll be invited as soon as it's set up and you can come and help us to write a great book.

I've signed up for Amazon CreateSpace to be able to produce real books using print-on-demand - and I'll try to update later today with some actual information and prices which can be used as an add-on pledge to get a physical book, although that seems quite tricky since we don't know how many pages or what size our book will be yet.... please leave a comment if this is something you'd be interested in!

Thank you again!

Chris

      I'd vote to add it directly to Amazon (also in Kindle format). If, for some reason, it becomes very popular and starts to make income, we'll have to think of a way to use that income, but I doubt it will come to that. ;)

      shall we start taking bets on who will be the highest quality writer?

      @Alien getting a real book when its ready won't be a problem. Just need to work out whether we organise a print run of a few copies for pre-orders and to sell directly via a website or something... or whether we do it through somewhere like amazon and get it listed for sale on there and each copy manufactured to order.

      You may have to guesstimate the costs - if we gather "too much", the extra can perhaps be used for professional editing. Or pumped back into E:D through PayPal (if it is open for long enough).

      Yes, a physical copy of the book sounds good Chris ;)

      I will want a physical book, but can't pay until after the E:D KS is ended.
      Can we make arrangements to accommodate that?
